. >> earlier this year, before he was the official nominee, you criticized mitt romney, you talked about his shortkomgtcome failure to connect with people as a candidate. that criticism has not gone away. and then had you his secretly recorded speech at a fundraiser we talked about the 47%. believing that they were victims. the obama campaign has made an ad that puts some pictures to those words. i want to play a portion of it and get you to respond. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. who are depend upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them. who believe that they're entitled to health care and to food, to housing. to, you name it. they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people, i'll never fix that. that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> governor, how does he overcome that? how does anybody buy that he cares about 100% of the country after those remarks? >> first of all, david, let's be c
romney. you talked about his shortcomings, a failure to connect with people as a candidate. that criticism has not gone away. and then you had his secretly recorded speech at a fundraiser where he talked about the 47% believing that they were victims much. the obama campaign made an ad that puts some pictures to those words. i want to play a portion of it and get you to respond. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince those people that they should take responsibility for their own lives. >> how will anybody buy that he cares about 100% of the country after those remarks? >> first of all, david, where i am, i couldn't see the images in the ad. i could just hear the voiceover so i can't comment on
no connection between that mitt romney and this mitt romney. you've talked about the remarkable things he's done on wall street. what he di with bain capital, what a great american success d y as well, there's a huge disconnect between that mitt romney and the mitt romney that we're seeing bumblg around on the campaign trail. it seems that while presidential elections elevate some like reagan and clinton, they diminish others like mitt romney. o fundamentally kind of technocrats and businesspeople look at what he did in massachusetts and say he got a lot of stuff done, worked with the rest of the government, et cetera, et cetera, got health care done, this is how government should function,ut athat ppen outheel obvio cagnil tt he was pushed into places, into corners, into positions that he may or may not actually believe in, but which portray him and create an image of him in very, very different light. and so now we are left with this kindf bum eling candidate w isn't even really sure wtis sedut saying he wanted to repeal the bush tax cuts. then he had his own 20% tax rate cut with no way to
, we talk about the 47% video, i'm hearing more and more people in the romney campaign as every day goes by, they understand more and more that they made a huge mistake with that libyan press conference. i'm not going to say that it was sort of that september 15th moment, the economy is sound, but john mccain last time, but i can't tell you how many pollsters are telling me that that was -- it made him look unpresidential. "the wall street journal" leading with their editorial today, "the libya debacle." the more we're finding out about benghazi, the more it looks like a gross security failure. and you know, something the romney campaign told me, this is the biggest mistake we made on libya. if you give the media a chance to talk about politics or policy, they'll talk about politics every time. and we get out in front of it, so all everybody talked about those first few days was the politics of it. but the policy looks, willie, more and more like a gross security failure. you've got so many warnings coming in and so many warnings that were ignored. now the administration, the lead o
, by the way, yioimth iact oftday. his own callous comments, romney has his own new ad out talking straight to the camera. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycck. reri ain poverty than when president obama took office, and 15 milliomore are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. >> i'm sorry, that was actually a little poetic license by jimmy kimmelve buom really does care. just listen as he explained his compassionate side to nbc's ron mott last night. >> don't forget, i got erybody in my state insured, 100 % of te kids in our s h hh ra i dot think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> wow, what a great argument for defending the president a's affordable care act. romney went straight up onto the podium and told us what he really thinks of helping to cover theuninred. o ce is really exhibit number one of the president's political philosophy, and that is that government knows better
to negotiate. wrote a letter to the ayatollah six months ago wanting to talk to him. >> what would mitt romney do differently? mitt romney talking to george stephanopoulos said he had the same red line as president obama. >> we don't know what president obama's red line is since he won't share it with us. won't share it with prime minister netanyahu. he doesn't want to have a red line. he wants to keep it as fuzzy as possible. if he wants to do that and communicate that privately to netanyahu and the ayatollah, i'm okay with that. the reality is he wants to keep it fuzzy. my fear is iran will pass the point of no return without knowing it passes the point of no return. >> first of all, we don't necessarily know what the president has said privately to an israeli leader but he has said publicly acquiring a weapon is the red line. he just said it yesterday. >> we know he hasn't told netanyahu that. netanyahu is begging him to meet with him to set a red line and is he leaving netanyahu in the dark, which is a terrible mistake. >> yesterday at the u.n. he said we do we must to prevent iran from ob
the rich wouldn't have to stay taxes. remember romney talking about that 47% that doesn't pay federal in come tax, can you believe what funds they are? how about you you didn't pay a dime on that $100 million. you're the bum. you're the cheat. when he was asked hey have you done anything where you can show empathy toward other human beings? that seems an easy question, right no here's what mitt romney says. >> don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there is anything that shows more empathy and care about people in the country than that kind of record. >> the one thing that shows your empathy is providing care like for example the same program as obamacare, what you did in massachusetts. >> the first big one i'm not going for is obamacare. i will repeal obamacare. >> there goes that empathy. what are you left with? not much at all. let's bling in a correspondent that has -- i do this every time epic, go ahead. >> all right epic politics man is up in san francisco. epic headquarters at current. michael, we ha
in advantages of this. paul ryan was talking about the romney ryan ticket new framework for the race. they said referendum on president obama's record. but it's decide how to best deal with the competent. here is paul ryan trying to set the stage. >> we can have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we can stick with the failed policies of last four years for the next four years or a brighter future. stalg nation versus growth, dependency versus opportunity and mobility. that is the classic choice and clear difference we are offering. >> reporter: that is sort of classic choice, a very broad assessment of the two competing viewpoints and agendas. there is a big discussion always about whether or not you win debates by fact points and trying gotchas or whether it's a question of demeanor and personality. you can go back to famous debates, al gore and george bush where al gore sed more intelligent things on the stage but his demeanor was so lousy he got bad reviews. so, with a full month of october dedicated to these four weeks, these deb
on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all just six weeks out from the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >>
've talked to some analysts who have been somewhat critical of the romney camp for some of the ads they put together. for instance, the first ad they put up was an ad called day one which was just a direct translation of an english language ad they had. as part of that ad among the things that governor romney talks about is or the narrator does on his behalf talks about wanting to repeal the health care reform plan. obama-care. that, of course, is something that is is actually very popular with hispanic. that's what some people have been considerd to be a misstep. the kinds of things where they don't target an ad directly at the hispanic community. until they do that, they won't get it right >> woodruff: is there a sense of how effective that is, i this advertising the romney camp is doing, how effective it is? >> for one thing they're far behind in terms of spanish language ads, far behind the obama campaign. they've only spent about half as much as the obama campaign had. that number has rampd up dramatically. they say they're going to do a full ad blitz in the last month. they introduced
it -- fascinating that so many people are talking about romney had a gaffe. it turns out he was right. that one that it was wrong to put pout an n a statement -- criticizing the -- apologizing for the video which the administration continued to do and obama will do again today in his u.n. speech. but also, you know, who had the foreign policy gaffes? it has been president obama. president obama went on "60 minutes" and called what's happening in the middle east bumps in the road. first ambassador killed since 1979 is a bum open the rop on t? >> mr. obama came back and said bumps in the road meant there is going to be problems in the middle east you have to deal with. >> i'm sure -- >> i'm just trying to be fair. >> i'm sure he tried to spin it. well, no. i mean, the thing is no one is fair when mitt romney supposedly makes a gaffe that turns out not to be a gaffe. when president obama says something like that, everybody is busy explaining it away. this was a major foreign policy gaffe. that same interview, he said that israel -- complaints from israel were just noise. referred to israel's compl
stations. that all went in three very different direction. romney talked everything from character assassination to his massachusetts healthcare reform and even though he is down about 9 points in the polls he still thinks he can take ohio. >> i need to win ohio. i'm planning on winning ohio. we're excited about our prospects here because i think the people of ohio know that the path we're on is just not the right course for creating the jobs and the rising incomes people deserve. >> romney think the debate next week could be a turning point in the race but that depends on who you talk to. politico is calling the denver do or die for romney but radio talk show host patrick dorenson says unless someone says something really stupid, it is political fodder. we'll leave it up to you on whether anyone might say something really stupid. "the washington post" quoting an a. p. reporter saying they had to impose a fact-checking limit on michele bachmann because she was wrong so often. back with more bill press after the break. s
it in this election because mitt romney has nothing to say on this. it's not a debate. it's one guy talking and nobody answering. other republicans below the presidential candate level are willg toavisat this is from "the tampa bay times." "over and over, every time the subjecof pulling troops out of afghanistan, republican congressman bill young has voted to stay the course. th avereti resolutions to to aetable for withdrawal. but not anymore." "i think we should remove ourself from afghanistan as quickly as we can," says congressman young. "i just think we're killing ki that don't need to die." this is the longest serving cs sumi t member of congres funds the pentagon in the house. he describes himself as a stay the course politician, since the days of the vietnam war. but he now says he is done. he is over it. and you know what? he's not ane. most americans are done. we are over it. more than two-thirdsth country says the u.s. should not be involved in afghanistan anymore and that is not a partisan figure. when you're looking at 69%, that's too high to be a partisan figure if nothing else. there's
of the marriott hotel chain said the campaign was wonderful. story after story talking about mitt romney's mormonism, the family who had a premature daughter who had premature complications. and the 14-year-old dying boy who befriended mitt romney and had mitt romney write his will. >> the next time mitt went to the hospital he was equipped with a yellow legal. and pen. together they made david's will. that is a task that no child should ever have to do. but it gave david peace of mind. so after david's death we were able to give his skateboard, his model rockets and fishing gear to his best friends. >> reporter: we have contacted the romney campaign. so far no comment. the mormon church also has not commented about harry reid's comments. megyn: right after this break frank luntz is going to be here. he's the author of "words that work." we are going to ask him if this is a calculated attack meant to put mormonism front and center in the campaign. and more on the president's decision to appear on "the view" today while not meeting with any of the world leaders coming to the united nation
. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue today. in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern about veterans. even if he didn't say what he wanted to do about that concern. mr. romney, in fact, implied that the sequester that might result in defense cuts that his running mate paul ryan voted for, he implied that would hurt suicide prevention programs for veterans even though the v.a. would be exempt from that, so i'm not sure he even understood what it was he was talking about. but at least he tried. at least veterans got a mention from him. even if it didn't make sense in policy terms. you do know that defense and veterans are two different -- at some point it should be possible with 40 days left to say veterans have to be more than just an applause line. right? you don't just get to use them for a photo op like the decommissioned battleship you used as a backdrop when you introduced paul ryan inexplicably in front of a battleship, another time when you didn't mention the war. even if you're not willing to talk about
this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> repo
't they come here and talk about what is happening to the jobs in this country? how can it romney talk about jobs in this country when his company, bain capital, which he founded, has ties to, and can influence today, will send 150 jobs to china right now. most of them will lose their jobs november 5th. they will get on the unemployment line and vote at just about the same time. >> tell us about your book the silent majority. who are these folks and why are they silence? >> i really do think that those who are deeply concerned about war, those who are concerned about the growing inequality in this country, people who are deeply concerned about climate change, forest fires, droughts -- we are talking about the dust bowl era times in this country, not only in this country, but around the world, those who are concerned about the fate of the planet are not a fringe of the a minority, not even a silent majority, but the silent majority, silenced by corporate media, which is why we have to take it back. host: one could argue that with the explosion of social media, with everything being said back
races. th thinkf things don't turn around soon, governor romney would be a drag on the ticket. i talke to a veteran republic, former state party chairman, he says, yes, people are v t concerns, but be calm. governor romney has time. >>rlyf a candidate loses by more thfivt starts to e. that a big issue for republicans. but the way i look at it, we're starting the fourth quarter we haveon arterback. and anybody th ows fourth tion . so oober will be big. romney has a goodtart the month, we'll be fine. reporr: you hear him say october wi be big. that starts e month. that would be the first debate, , on october 3rd. republicans say is is overblown. doesn't matter if they ve early or election day. but look at theequest for early mail-in democrats havea countywhere i'm in, m than hf the votes were cast early last election. that's where most of the students are.fascinating towatch one thing republicans are worrieout ashi early voting opehens, t president has momentum at the moment. they say it's critical that goney swit momentum athat voting ntinues wolf, 4 days right up to election day. >> ev
the hispanic strategy that the romney strategy has been let's talk about the economy. the cuban americans and puerto ricans and in hopes we can peel off just enough of them because maybe that will be the trick. the problem is in florida of the hispanic electorate has changed quite significantly. the fastest-growing group are dimond puerto rican latin american immigrants for whom immigration is a defining issue in a litmus test issue. roughly a third now. so i suspect he's going to have a hard time winning florida in part because of the changing demographics of the latino electorate in that state. >> what you think about all of this? to years ago they brought on the brand new party and the new type of republican party that maybe wouldn't make what of what appear to be some of these mistakes the romney campaign is making. what do you make of all of this? do you think that is correct? >> christa will stipulate what has been said with immigration for example there is a fascinating moment during a republican presidential campaign that happened last year during which you have mitt romney, new g
not have to guess about what gov. romney means when he talks about medicare, social security, and education. it is almost like two incumbents running. paul ryan -- i mean this sincerely. paul ryan introduced a budget that past. it lays out in stark detail what they would do on everything from medicare to medicaid to social security to education to the debt across the board. we do not have to wonder anymore. we do not have to wonder exactly what gov. romney means when he says a, b, c, or d. they are not talking anymore about what paul ryan and mitt romney are really four. there are spending an awful lot of time telling you what we, barack obama and joe biden are against. they just attack everything. the truth of the matter is, no where is it more clear what they would do that on medicare. but miss start off by -- i will give you a few specific examples to make a larger point. they have laid out clearly -- what barack obama and joe biden did is they have stolen money from medicare and they have done it to get obamacare and all of this. you see it in the ads. nothing could be further from the
what's happening to the jobs in this country? how can mitt romney talk about jobs in this country when his company, bain keep, which he founded and certainly has ties to and can influence today, will send out more than 150 jobs to china right now, most of them will lose their jobs on november 5. they'll get on the unemployment line and vote at just about the same time. host: tell us about the title of your book, "the silent ma jort." who are these folks, and how are they silent? guest: well, i really do think that those who are deeply concerned about war, those who are concerned about the growing inequality in this country, people who are deeply concerned about climate change, the forest fires, the droughts, i mean, we're talking about dust bowl-era times now in this country, and not only in this country, but around the world, those who are concerned about the fate of the planet are not a fringe minority, not even a silent majority. but the silenced majority, silenced by the corporate media, which is why we have to take it back. host: but one could argue that with the explosion of soci
in the week i had a chance to talk with senior romney adviser about all this. he compared the president tho cy young to the baseball pitcher who is the standard for all pitchers across the major leagues. and you really don't set expectations any higher than your opponent than comparing your opponent to cy young. >> thanks very much. jim acosta traveling with mitt romney. president obama is trying to gain support what has traditionally been republican territory. what are you seeing? >> reporter: as you know, election day may be weeks away, but in virginia, ab sen tea voting is already under way and that is why you saw president obama and mitt romney treading on each other's turf this week. president obama heading to virginia beach as he tries to keep virginia out of reach for romney. >> reporter: in virginia beach, president obama tailored his latest attack on mitt romney to the military voters here as he hit his opponent for his recent comments that 37% of americans who don't pay income taxes see themselves as victims. >> i travel a lot around this country and i don't immediate meet a lot of v
's talking about the campaign that's misguided but this fundamentally at center of all of this is mitt romney and you see someone embattled with himself. >> two things going on particular at this moment. one is we're 40 days out and people are punch drunk. i have tremendous amount of empathy on people working on the campaigns, they've been at it for years. all of a sudden, particularly the republican side you're seeing outside strategists saying no, we can do it better. unforced error like romney, these guys are exhausted. you can see for the first time romney looking exhausted. the other thing that's unique to the campaign, there's a term in chess that you cannot make a move that doesn't make your position worse. from the beginning, because of affordable health care and romney's stance in massachusetts, unlike every other republican candidate, he's been zugzwagged, they're trying to put it on obama. running out of time. everybody to richard's point, they heard, we think you should fire this guy, what are you going to do? now that they have to get into specifics, every move alienates one side
be reversed. thank you very much. [applause] >> also in europe today, mitt romney talked about -- also in new york today, mitt romney spoke at the clinton global initiative. congress, the model for me was a program based in boston called city year, which a lot of you know about. it is a great program. when i left the white house there was discussion about whether americorps would be defunded, the largest affiliate in the united states was city year, and mitt romney was on the board. i wrote him a letter saying we should continue this. i called him and i was out of the white house and i said, governor, i love city year. that is what americorps is all about. i hope you will save it. he urged the republican congress to continue to support city year, and they did. i just visited the program in south africa where the youth unemployment rate exceeds 40%, and 80% of the volunteers in johannesburg have a job the day they leave city year. it turns out it is good economics and good for the society. all of you should know that, and, governor, i thank you for being here. the podium is yours. [applause] >
soon, governor romney would be a drag on the ticket. i talked to a veteran republican, former state party chairman, he says, yes, people are voicing those concerns, but be calm. governor romney has time. >> clearly if a candidate loses by more than five, it starts to affect balance. that's a big issue for republicans. but the way i look at it, we're starting the fourth quarter, we have a strong quarterback. and anybody that knows football knows that fourth quarter's when most of the action happens. so october will be big. and if romney has a good start to the month, we'll be fine. >> reporter: you hear him say october will be big. that starts the month. that would be the first debate, wolf, on october 3rd. republicans say this is overblown. doesn't matter if they vote early or election day. but look at the request for early mail-in democrats have a five-to-one advantage. in the county where i'm in, more than half the votes were cast early last election. that's where most of the students are. fascinating to watch. one thing republicans are worried about as this early voting opens, th
. romney separated himself from these chinese oil conglomerate. he talks out of one side of his mouth, but acts out of another side. he said our greatest threat was russia when our greatest threat right now is al qaeda. i do not think that he has the experience or knowledge to help of foreign affairs. host: what do you make of his foreign policy affairs statement yesterday in new york? caller: most of the things he has done have been to outsource jobs to other countries, he did not ask them to open up anything. i do not trust him. he is not in it for the lower class of americans. he is in it for the capital gain that he can get. host: thank you for calling. here is a message from twitter this morning -- host: more of the front pages this morning, from "the washington post," the president urged his counterparts to back democratic values. "the pittsburgh post-gazette" this morning, "obama decries of violence." of course, iran is making a lot of headlines this morning in advance of the speech that will be made by the iranian leader, which we will have on c-span. here's more from the pres
i know i am not the only one who was offended to your -- to hear governor romney write off nearly half of the country in his famous 47% comments. 47% of the people are dependent. if you read the book congressman ryan has written with two other members of congress, they talk about this culture of dependency without acknowledging that all those people, of those 40%, 82% of those people pay income tax. 10% are on social security and do not have to pay. another chunk of those -- over 68,000 -- are in battle and do not have to pay taxes on their pay. the country that i know is not a country not willing to take responsibility, not a country that views itself as a victims. romney said it is not his job to worry about those people. half of america. what i hear this talk not just from runyan and brian but this new republican brianby the way, this is not your father's republican party. this is not even mitt romney's father's republican party. when they talk about cultural dependency and american decline, i can honestly say to you, i do not recognize the country they are talking about. i do
thus far on style, on likability, so romney -- romney, what, needs to talk about his family, your words. let me quote you, you say yes, he's tried to do that many, many times before, but there is always hoping that this time it will work. why will it work this time? >> it might work because more people are watching. when he talked about it during the convention, the ratings were really very, very low on that. and he had to share the platform with everyone else. with christie and with rubio. this time around it is him versus the president. and this is his chance to throw out some relatable points, to say things like i'm in public service because of my father. i want to improve the country because of my family. i think if he can throw one or two pointsike that, he can turn it around. but don't expect him to start crying. his not that guy. he shouldn't pretend to be that guy. he shouldn't pretend to be ronald reagan because he's not ronald reagan. he should simply run on his credentials and experience. and that's what he'll mostly try to do. >> as you point out, not take newt gingrich's ad
talking about it for months. until now. this week, mitt romney himself finally forced to address it. e idhaenine other day, you said fool people with his ads and his speeches about your record. but fact checkers have also taken issue with your ads. haven't you also played fast and loose with the facts from time to time? >> we've been absolutely spot-on. and anytime there's anything that'seen misswere itre i >> hmm. what he's describing there, removing or correcting false claims made by the campaign once you realize they are false, that is a process that a normal campaign does follow. that's what makes is statement so newsworthy. because the romney campan hasn't been doing th. theyaven brengir e msm re once they're proven to be false. which is a strange decision for a campaign operating at the presidential election. look at one of the first general election ads released by the romney campaign. this was released back in november of last year. >> provide relief for homeowners. it's going to take a new direction. if we keep talking about the economy,e're going tlose. >> "if we keep talking
